750ml Bottle: Got in trade from phaleslu; Thanks Peter! Aroma of malt, grain, cereal, and hay. Poured yellow/gold in color with a large, creamy, dense, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, grain, and little else. Light to medium body. Slick, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt and grain finish is light to medium sweet and lightly dry. How boring!

keepersj12 (2679) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2014
A very nice blond. Has a bit of lemon above an earthy background. The flavor is crisp and refreshing. The finish is dry. A very good summer thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2003
This beer had a large sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body had a lot of lively/fizzy carbonation and it was transparent with a golden hue. The nose was lightly malty, sweet and fruity. The taste was sweet, somewhat malty, tart and somewhat flat with an aftertaste. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery, thin and dry. This was a light bodied beer with sparse lacing. This was a drinkable beer and after a few sips I could feel some alcohol effects.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2004
Poured with a nice solid head over cloudy yellow. Musty honey aroma. Very banana-spiced flavor, with a hint of peppery spice. Crazy stuff.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Not very good. Pours a lovely golden color. Nose is really more like a lager than ale. Flavours reflect this (Heineken) but retain a slight barnyardness. Leather, and hay with lager yeast and tetternangs G-rat

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Poured the color of a golden ripe apricot with a very airy tall white head. Tons of carbonation killed the head pretty quickly. Not much of an aroma save for some light yeast and a little citrus. Flavors of pale malt, bread, apple and citrus with just a hint of hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel suffered a bit from the overwhelming carbonation. Finish was crisp. Overall, a refreshing but underwhelming ale.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
Decent aroma, very subtle smells. Mine poured with a big cloudy white head that dissapated quickly - pale straw color. Great mouthfeel and very smooth. I wouldn’t drink it everyday, but its worth having once.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Pours a golden hue with slight haze. Smell of light citrus and floral notes. Taste is sweetened malt, slight light fruit, honey and a musty yeast flavor. Slightly dry. This is pretty tasty.
